I was so looking forward to eating great seafood at The Chase. I was very disappointed. I ordered 2 different seafood tacos. I found the "hot" spices too overpowering for the fish and they were cold. My friend's bisque was also cold.
I had the halibut (tasty and hot) but did not find the sauce was the right taste for the entire dish.
Overall The Chase is a trendy place with a great location for people who work downtown but I am not inclined to go here again.

Service was poor. We had to flag down waitress more than once. The wine we ordered arrived at table after our meals were delivered. Overall lunch, main course and coffee took 2hours and restaurant was not busy.

Food and service was excellent. I did have to ask the servers to have music adjusted as the volume was simply too loud in addition to a larger table nearby. The servers willingly responded and it made the experience much more pleasant. It was the only downside to a great meal and service.

Food was not great, looked way more fancy on the website and on Open Table and it was just another modern bar. Also, according to Open Table this was a great place for breakfast and brunch, but they only offer breakfast on weekends. This is a mistake in Open Table.

Poor service. They seem want to let us out even our dishes hasn't finished yet and lots of space with no waiting que. didn't wash shells properly so we feel stones in every oyster and clam. Overall, Too much pricey.

Was there for business lunch, my client ordered the Fried Chicken as recommended by the server - however was very greasy and appeared burnt; didn't expect that from a higher end restaurant. Not in nature to complain, but disappointed for sure.

It was our first time dining at The Chase Fish & Oyster and the food was fantastic. The service on the other hand was the opposite. Not only did we not have a clear server, after putting in our first order no one except food runners came to our table. No checkup no offer for refills of our cocktails, nothing. Unfortunately we had to keep flagging staff down to order more food and another drink and a dessert menu. The staff bringing out the food were great, but the servers were disappointing.

Tried the Family style meal for the table and none of us enjoyed it. It was not a well balanced selection of food. Avoid it and order from the menu. Service was great at the beginning but fell apart as soon as it got busy.

Great din as always, doesn’t disappoint. Cocktails were a hit and the biscuits and oysters!! Octopus and lobster roll were good, not outstanding. The big miss was the mussels- the broth wasn't overly flavourful and the mussels were ridiculously large, kind of gross. Overall, great din, love this place.

Unexpected find turned out to be a great spot. Fresh oysters and clams were really good and priced right. A little on the high side but to be expected for this kind of restaurant. Fresh steamed lobster however was way overpriced - north of $100. Make sure you check their market price before ordering. Overall good atmosphere high-quality food. You won’t be disappointed.

great food, great staff, and the live music is perfect....but the acoustics of the restaurant make having a conversation rather difficult with people at your own table. We were always competing with the background noises from the restaurant. next time i go will be for a lunch. Great place.

We ordered appetizers to share. The oysters came quickly enough and were good. Then we waited and waited for the rest of the appetizers. Received no attention from anyone until over a wait over 60 minutes and then were told it would be 5 more minutes because the kitchen was tied up with a large party. If a restaurant has the impact everyone else meals for one party, then they need to get better organized. It would have helped also if they paid some attention to you instead of leaving you alone. The appetizers finally came and the shrimp bisque was lukewarm. You’ve got to be kidding! The waiter basically said sorry and offered to bring another one. We didn’t want to wait any more. I thought they would at least not make us pay for it. Wrong!

Overall, a bad experience. Waiter was terrible, and even if the food was good, he ruined the evening.

Other parties should not have a negative impact on someone’s dinner. And especially should not be an excuse.

First class, as always. Chase Fish & Oyster is a fish restaurant for crying out loud. So you should expect great halibut. And that is exactly what you will get. Every time. Nicely garnished. Very tasty. Portion size just right.

Upon arriving at Chase Fish & Oyster, they could NOT FIND my reservation. Luckily, they were able to accomodate us on the spot, though we were "upgraded" to The Chase ... which is considerably more expensive. While the food and service at The Chase (upstairs) was stellar, our bill was nearly $350 for two people. This was probably about $150 more than we wanted to spend.

I felt that we were hustled into spending more money than intended, by them "losing" our reservation ... BEWARE.

NOTE: Both the upstairs and downstairs had open tables on a Friday night.

Overrated and Disappointed. Nowhere close to the best seafood restaurant the online reviews led me to believe it was. Halibut entree was exceptional, but menu was too limited for friends who were huge seafood fans. The only meat entree on the menu is fried chicken, no steak, pork, or veal. Service was excellent with very hot and sexy waiters. Birthday celebration was a let down - ran out of candles and only offering was a piece of pie.

My mom and I were attending the Lady Gaga concert and attended Chase before heading over. We sat on the patio and ordered a sharing seafood platter. The portions were super generous! We also had a few cocktails and mocktails and the server was great at making suggestions for our allergies and requirements. Overall Great experience!

Hostess wasn't very friendly but maybe she was having a bad day. Lovely low lighting but difficult to read the menu. We were seated very near the entrance ramp to the main seating area so there was quite a bit of traffic. Food was good with generous portions. We split a seafood platter and a great bottle of wine. Our server was very friendly and attentive.

The server we had was not a good server. Everyone around us arrived later and finished ahead of us. She made excuses of working an evend/group which says the restaurant didn't staff accordingly.
The sides under the fish were not the same temperature and had obviously been sitting waiting for the fish.

She comped our appetizer as we still waited f R the main as if this made up for a main dish that took over an hour to arrive. We had to wolf it down at that point.

Good food. But there are many other business lunch choices. I'm not confident to take a key account here for lunch due to the service experience. It would dampen the engagement.

I must say that I am disappointed with the new menu. I used to go all the time and the last time I went I was disappointed. This time I hoped that it had gotten better but not so... and I was again disappointed. The menu has moved to more plant based foods. My guest had a hard time finding something he wanted to eat. The fish of the fish and chips was good but the chips part were disappointing for what I had previously had. Not sure I will be back after two disappointments.
